Alan is in his squire years at the castle of Trebond. But things are not so simple for Alan, because Alan is actually Alanna. A girl who, disguised as a boy, switched places with her twin brother to become a knight. This book is filled with action and adventure, and the tiniest bit of romance. Lies, knights, power-thirsty lords. And is Prince Jonathan simply a mentor, or something more? I loved this book, and it is one of my favorites. I have read it multiple times, and would read it again. Even after the first read you feel a connection to the characters and want, or do not want, them to succeed. One of the themes in that girls are not weak, and should not be thought to be. Though a more important theme is that not everything is won by violence and war. This book was written for teens and young adults, but would be great for all ages. I recommend it to anyone.

Fascinating and very exciting!You can actually 'feel' Alanna's fear when she fell into the icy lake or the tensed situation when Alanna is fighting with Duke Roger. This story is as good as the first book, maybe even better!

I loved this book to bits -- I thought the first book in the series, Alanna: The First Adventure was good, but this one is really great. Alanna, who has successfully disguised herself as a boy in order to train as a knight, is growing up. So far she's kept her secret from everyone except those closest to her, but she knows the time is coming when she will pass her Ordeal into knighthood, and reveal herself as Tortall's first female knight in over a century. Fortunately, she has some strong allies, but awkwardly enough, both Prince Jonathan and George the Thief Lord (who have been in on her secret for several years) are starting to notice her in a different way, and she's not ready for that yet... There's plenty of sorcery, swashbuckling, and cloak-and-dagger stuff, too. All in all, this is a very satisfying read -- I only wish it were longer!
